The 35-year-old appeared to have elbowed Bournemouth’s Tyrone Mings as the visitors forced the Reds to a 1 – 1 draw at the Old Trafford.

The Cherries’ defender had with his boot stamped the Manchester United player on his head and moments later Zlatan launched a revenge by ferociously hitting Mings with his elbow.
